Facility Details

The Clinical Pathology Core (CPC) performs clinical diagnostic testing for all research and colony animals. This includes complete blood counts, routine chemistry panels, and microbial culture workups. The lab is equipped with the Sysmex XN1000v veterinary hematology analyzer, the Beckman AU480 chemistry analyzer, and the Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight (MALDI-TOF) instrument for microbe identification. This data provides essential information to research staff, veterinarians, and affiliated scientists for research objectives, as well as health information about the animals in our care. The CPC is staff with three American Society of Clinical Pathologist certified licensed Medical Technologists.
